6 Best Dog Toothpastes for Your Dog’s Dental Health


Brushing your dog’s teeth daily doesn’t have to be a dreaded task—for you or your dog. It can actually become a fun time to connect with your dog every day! Finding the right dog toothpaste is a key component of making the daily tooth-brushing routine pleasant for everyone.

Once you find the right toothpaste, we recommend introducing it gently—allowing your dog to get used to the idea. Slowly introduce your dog to her new toothbrush and toothpaste, and then keep up the brushing! Consistency makes all the difference—not only in getting your dog used to the daily routine, but in keeping her mouth healthy. Our team of veterinary dentists at Animal Dental Care and Oral Surgery in Loveland recommends trying one of these 6 best dog toothpastes.


1. Virbac Enzymatic Toothpaste


This is by far the most commonly recommended toothpaste for dogs by veterinarians. Virbac Enzymatic Toothpaste has proven and published studies demonstrating its positive effects. It is a non-foaming toothpaste that comes in 5 different flavors. Its enzymatic action has an antibacterial property that decreases plaque formation on dog teeth.


2. Petrodex Enzymatic Toothpaste for Dogs


This poultry-flavored dog toothpaste comes in a 6.2-ounce tube, which makes it an excellent value! Formulated with patented enzymes, this toothpaste is made to reduce plaque and tartar build-up, as well as fight bad breath. It is non-foaming, making tooth-brushing time easy and mess-free. The poultry flavor makes this toothpaste palatable to most dogs.


3. Arm & Hammer Clinical Gum Health Enzymatic Toothpaste


Arm & Hammer Enzymatic toothpaste is safe for adult dogs and puppies. It contains a common homeopathic tooth-cleaning ingredient—baking soda—which will clean your dog’s teeth and fight bad breath. It is also formulated with special enzymes that combat tartar build-up. The toothpaste comes in chicken, beef, or vanilla-ginger flavors to entice your dog—with a mint scent that will leave her mouth fresh.


4. Kissable All-Natural Toothpaste for Dogs


This all-natural toothpaste packs a punch when it comes to keeping your dog’s mouth clean and healthy, yet it’s gentle enough for adult dogs and puppies. It comes in two tempting flavors: vanilla with tea tree oil or cucumber mint.


5. Organic Dental Solutions Kit


The Organic Dental Solutions Kit includes everything you need for your dog’s at-home tooth-brushing routine. Inside the kit, you will find a 0.8-ounce tube of dog gel toothpaste and a dog toothbrush. The toothpaste is USDA certified organic, and free of chemicals, dyes, preservatives, and artificial additives.
